THE home of Morrison owners Kylie Radford and Richard Poulson, like their distinctive fashion range, is tastefully trendy, oozing modern elegance while promising an effortless lifestyle.
The three-bedroom/two-bathroom dwelling on Winfield Street, Hamilton Hill is a rear subdivision but still sits on a whopping 862sqm.
It’s allowed plenty of room for young nippers Baxter and Louis to race their trikes down the long, long drive, before hitting the dirt track leading to a veritable wild orchard at the rear of the block.
A high wall separates this wilderness from a manicured lawn and garden (plus a cubby house and in-ground trampoline), overlooked by an expansive, timbered deck and covered patio off the rear of the home.
With room for a massive outdoor-dining setting and a full-sized lounge, along with cafe blinds and two wall-mounted gas heaters, this huge space is designed for year-round relaxation and alfresco entertainment.
And with a bank of bifold, jarrah windows off the kitchen entertaining will never be easier.
Wide, polished-black concrete benches create a spacious servery to the patio, with a matching breakfast bar inside for guests to lean on, drink in hand, while talking to the cook.
There’s no shortage of storage with a huge double pantry and a swag of smooth, self-closing drawers.
The dining/living area is vast, with a spacious mezzanine lounge above for the kids to watch TV or play, or maybe for mum and dad to find a bit of peace and quiet above any downstairs din.
I’d be making the most of the delightful reading nook, tucked under the eaves of this eyerie, where plentiful cushions ensure a comfy hidey hole for those wanting uninterrupted book time.
Both bathrooms have gorgeous black, white and grey terrazzo floors, not to mention uber-funky fittings—including three showerheads and a deep, deep bath in the grown-ups’ semi-ensuite.
The adjacent main bedroom is a cavernous space, with double doors to a cute, cobbled courtyard garden.
Just a stone’s throw from lovely Manning Park, this home is mere minutes from the beach by car and there’s plenty of shopping options in either direction.
Slip into something comfortably fashionable and check this one out.
